I'm trying to figure out how many rockets/grenades/sticky bombs it takes to destroy a Tank. If you know the exact number for a specific weapon, please post it.

 

How many Jet/Buzzard rockets and Tank shells it takes would be good to know aswell!

 

EDIT:

Shooting the front and sides, it takes exactly 8 of any handheld explosive weapon, or 24 Jet/Buzzard Rockets, or 44 Jet Minigun bullets to destroy a Tank.

 

Shooting the back, the Tank takes double damge. Exactly 4 of any handheld weapon, or 12 Jet/Buzzard Rockets, or 22 Jet Minigun bullets to destroy a Tank.

 

RPGs = 8 (Back = 4)

 

Grenade Launcher = 8 (Back = 4)

 

Sticky Bombs = 8 (Back = 4)

 

Grenades = 8 (Back = 4)

 

Tank Shells = 4 (Back = 2)

 

Jet / Buzzard Rockets = 24 (Back = 12)

 

Jet Minigun = 44 (Back = 22)

from what i heard, it depends on where you shoot it

 

shooting a tank in the back with an RPG supposedly takes it out quicker than shooting it anywhere else

 

cant give you an exact number though

Dunno if its the same for player owned tanks, but I killed a tank on zancudo this morning with 2 rockets from a buzzard. Direct hits though.

I did some tests with the weapons, first post updated.

 

@OriginalCharacter: Tanks take double damage when hit in the back.

 

@mfoster09: Yeah it takes more than 2 hits (to the back) on a player owned vehicle.

It takes me about 2-3 Buzzard rockets to to kill them if I hit them in the back where the armor is weak. But it's ridiculous to be wasting thousands on sticky bombs trying to kill one tank that can be replaced for $200. It's totally not worth...

Tested everything in Content Creator, first post updated.

 

I'm surprised with the results for Jet / Buzzard Rockets, but I triple-checked to make sure. Though the rockets weren't locked on.

 

@SinisterPredator: How did you come to that conclusion? :blink:

 

@Kevin: Killing the driver doesn't destroy the Tank.

 

@Dave: Fair point, though money in GTAO is unlimited when you think about it.

Spotted it further up. 1 well placed heavy sniper shot will kill the driver. There are vents that can be shot through. Get a friend in a tank and practice firing from different angles. My MC has a ban on tanks. We dont use them, only for practicing taking them down with new members.

Did you do the test with another player operating the tank OP? in my experience it takes at least 10 stickies to the back if a player is operating it, but only 4 if the tank is un-manned.

I was going to ask the same ? As above
Also if you slap stickies on front of a car and detonate while ramming into back jihad style
Will 2 sets of 5 do it?
Being 5 is the limit of active stickies
Great test btw
Also I wonder if there is a difference in freeroam vs Deathmatch

i would just wait until the cops ram the guy 3 or 4 times before trying that

@Charmlessrogue: These tests are to figure out how to destroy a Tank, not kill the Tank's driver. But thanks anyway, it's good to know theres other people that don't use Tanks excessively, or at all. If only there were more people like us. :pp

 

@MNTLspazzm: No there was no player operating the Tank, I did all tests solo. I will test with a friend and if the results differ in any way i'll update the first post.

 

@Malibu454: Unless the Tank does have more health when it's player controlled, It should only take 8 Sticky Bombs to the back to destroy it. So i'm assuming 2 sets of 4 would do.

Also I tested all handheld explosive weapons in Freeroam first, but I had to switch to the Content Creator to test the Jet/Buzzard Rockets. Though I tested all weapons again just to make sure, and the results were the same.

Then again, others have claimed to destroy the Tank with 2-4 Jet/Buzzard Rockets in Freeroam, whereas it took me 12 (to the back) to destroy one in Deathmatch. So i'm not too sure...

 

Thanks for the feedback everybody, it really helps. :^:

I fired 4 RPG rockets to the front of a tank around where the tank driver sits and I killed the driver and the tank didn't explode but if a few more RPG rockets or any explosive it will destroy the tank.

did you test these with another person on the tank? I swear they're more durable with a person inside it.

I heard that the tanks health increases when someone is inside, without anyone inside, it turns into an AI health tank, which is very weak...
